Birchbox May 2015 | Free Your Mind


For the month of May Birchbox gave us the opportunity to colour the boxes ourselves in order to bring creativity back to our lives. Unfortunately, I did not get the chance to colour the box myself but feel it would have been quite a fun activity to do. (Leave links down below if you coloured in your box!)



Onto what came inside… 

The box this month had the aim to ‘Free Your Mind’ and it definitely reflects this. Inside the first thing I notice is a pack of coloured pencils to colour in your box. I love this idea as it gives you something to do once you have finished playing with all the products. 

 The partner for this month is the nail brand ‘WAH London’, again there was the option to chose your sample, I opted for the Press On Nails. When they came, personally, they are very over the top for me. I feel they will be perfect for a night out but not for everyday. 

Next up is the Parlour Moisturizing Sea Salt Spray; I am really looking forward to trying this when I go on holiday next week. Sea Salt Sprays are perfect for hot weather as they tame the hair, whilst still giving it that tousled look. 

I also have a Whish body butter in the almond scent. I have received one of these body butters before but in the lavender sent and I really liked the feel. However, the sent can be very over powering! 

The Number 4 Reconstructing Masque is something I have never heard of and came in a little sachet. It states that it will turn your hair from lacklustre to luscious with this moisturising treatment. 

For make up I received a bronzer duo from Jelly Pong Pong, this is a brand I have never heard of before. This cute little sample would be perfect for taking away as it is very small! Swatching the product it feels very creamy and soft. The pigmentation is not heavy at all but still looks very beautiful.


The final product in the box is the Mattfinity Lip Rouge by Mirenese in the colour Paris. Again, this is a brand I have never heard of but I love the way the lipgloss looks. The colour is very beautiful and when swatching the pigmentation is incredible. It doesn’t look too matte and seems it would be very creamy on the lips. 

Did you receive a box this month? What were your thoughts of it?
